Additional details

Sail Date: Apr 2022
Cabin: Family Mini-Suite with Balcony

Overall: 2/5

TL;DR - Entertainment was lacking and the ship is catered the older crowd, didn't have anything for anyone between 25 - 35 years old. NCL will also upcharge you for EVERYTHING. We had an additional $250 worth of charges that were a mistake (as we had the premium plus package) and it took multiple trips to the service desks to get them removed as there we 4 of them on the ship that we noticed (2 of them removed) and 1 that we noticed when we got home worth $98 we are still trying to figure out where it came from. While they will upcharge you, they will not refund you for anything. We missed a port (Roatan) due to high wind levels and NCL didn't offer anything - not even on board credit - to make up for it. All in all, there are better ships with better food and entertainment for all age ranges, but if you are under 35 this is definitely not the ship for you.

Cabin Review

Family Mini-Suite with Balcony

Cabin - We had a mini suite. It was very minimal as expected. Very small balcony, but everything came as advertised. The hydro jets in the shower were nice, but nothing to write home about. Cabin is a 3/10
